You likely never heard the story of the leftist Canadian woman who sent an envelope filled with the deadly poison ricin to Donald Trump. The media never did make a big deal about this terrorist. And now she has been convicted of the crime.

A Canadian woman pleaded guilty Wednesday to mailing a threatening letter containing the poison ricin to then-President Donald Trump at the White House.
The letter from Pascale Ferrier directing Trump to “give up and remove your application for this election,” was intercepted at a mail sorting facility in September 2020, before it could reach the White House.
The 55-year-old Quebec woman also pleaded guilty to sending similar threatening letters to Texas law enforcement officials. She is expected to be sentenced to 262 months in prison, just short of 22 years, under the terms of a plea deal with prosecutors. A sentencing hearing is set for April.
According to a statement by the Dept. of Justice:
Ferrier was detained in the State of Texas for around 10 weeks in the spring of 2019, and she believed that the law enforcement officials were connected to her period of detention. In early September 2020, Ferrier used the Twitter social media service to propose that someone should “please shoot [T]rump in the face.”
The letters in the envelopes contained threatening language, and the letter addressed to then-President Trump instructed him to “[g]ive up and remove [his] application for this election.” Ferrier mailed each of the threatening ricin letters from Canada to the United States. Ferrier then drove a car from Canada to the Peace Bridge Border Crossing in Buffalo, New York, on Sept. 20, 2020, where border patrol officials found her in possession of a loaded firearm, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and other weapons.
Ferrier is expected to get 22 years in prison and her sentencing phase will be held on April 26.
The bigger question is, why have most Americans never heard of Pascale Ferrier?
If this psycho terrorist had sent actual poison to a Democrat president, the media would have made a gigantic deal over this crime. Every American would have this monster’s name tattooed on their consciousness for hearing it day in and day out — IF she had attacked a Democrat.
Worse, since she tried to kill Donald Trump and Republicans, the media could not care less.
That is why you probably never heard of Pascale Ferrier.
Indeed, the media was rooting for her to kill Trump and his administration.
